  • Our stay in this hostel was perfect: the nicest and most friendly staff, a clean (it even received an award on cleanliness in July 2013), calm and comfy place! I highly recommend it! The only "negative" point is that it is a bit far from the Old Town, around 15-minute walk, but this drawback is offset by all the positive aspects of the Light House! And even if we were supposed to leave on Friday morning, we were allowed to use the common spaces until Friday evening (our bus was at 11 pm).
